In the federal contracting game, information is power. Too many contractors, especially new ones, wait for an opportunity to appear on FedBizOpps and then decide if it is right for them. Sometimes this works, more often it does not. Smart businesses get out in front of the RFP and learn more about the buyer, prepare teaming arrangements, and get on the right mechanism. The ZKDS market snapshot will put you in control of the your success factors instead of you reacting to the latest thing in your in-box.

Here is what we do…

o   Which offices and agencies

o   What are points of contact in the government for learning about future procurements.

Who won the business previously?

o   Who are your possible partners?
